The Independent Way funeral plan

More than 600,000 people in Great Britain have taken out a funeral plan. With a JJ Burgess & Sons Independent Way funeral plan we will make sure that your loved ones are spared much of the burden of organising a funeral. You’ll have specified every detail in advance and taken care of all the costs within our control.

You decide on what kind of funeral you'd like, and you can personalise your arrangements any way you please.

Our funeral plan, arranged in association with Golden Charter, enables you to pay for every possible cost in advance, so that your family or estate may never be asked for a penny more for the arrangements selected.

What are the benefits?

  • You know that your loved ones will be spared some of the burden of bereavement. You will have specified every detail of the funeral in advance, selected the funeral director and made provision for the costs.
  • Once you have paid for your plan you can be sure that neither your loved ones nor your estate will be asked for a penny more for the services within the control of your funeral director - no matter how much these costs may rise in years to come.
  • Financial security - your payment will be held in an independent trust fund

Why should you pay for your funeral in advance? Would you do better to put your money in a building society? On past evidence the answer is clearly no - the cost of funerals is rising at more than 10% per annum.

There are many other benefits all of which are described in our brochure - simply complete the form below and we will send you one.
